(May 18, 2009) - Oklahoma City residents who have not yet registered their storm shelter with the City’s Action Center can now do so by logging on to www.okc.gov and clicking on the “register your storm shelter” link under the Action Center icon.
The Storm Shelter Registry is a free, voluntary service that allows residents to provide information about their storm shelter so police, fire and emergency responders can find them in case of an emergency.
“We don’t want residents to be buried undetected in their storm shelter for an extended length of time after severe weather,” said Action Center manager Beth Crounse. “The registry will help public safety officers know where to search during the rescue process.”
If your storm shelter is located in the Oklahoma City limits and you are unable to add it to the registry, or if you need to update information about your registered storm shelter, contact the Action Center at 297-2535.
Information gathered will not be shared with anyone other than emergency responders.
